Dan Petrescu out as Cluj coach after 3 league titles

CLUJ-NAPOCA, Romania (AP) — Dan Petrescu has left his job as coach of Romanian champion Cluj, the club said Monday.

He leaves the club in third place in the league and still in contention in its Europa League group, which is led by Roma. Cluj hosts CSKA Sofia on Thursday.

Petrescu, who has also coached in Russia, Qatar and China, was unable to guide Cluj through Champions League qualifying to reach the group stage.
